Our homework this week will be online. The students can work on tasks on IXL
They can also make read and comment on the Class Blogfolios. The children are really excited to get comments from their friends and parents. We have talked about making good comments to our classmates. The best part of the practice is that the children are motivated to keep writing, and that just makes me smile.
Your child will be bringing home a permission letter for Blogfolios in their backpack. I have attached the signed permission slips from last year to allow for changes before the blogfolios appear on the class blog.
Today we took a look at blogfolios from different grades, and we even started our first post on a google doc. It will take some time to complete it. The students are beyond excited and have asked if they can work on it at home tonight. I said yes 🙂 We will work on this post over the next week at school as well. I have also put some suggested skills for multiplication work on IXL.
Work on your blog post (Don’t stay up until midnight )
Work on multiplication skills on IXL
If you have any questions or concerns please reach out.
Just a quick reminder to let you know that tomorrow is Dress Down Day. The children are encouraged to bring in a toonie or loonie for the Terry Fox Foundation.

One key feedback I need and I will email this out as well is I need to know if each student is participating with a parent, older sibling, or if they need to be paired with a teacher. This is super important for the day to be as fun as possible!
